Perhaps readers hear the word "matchmaking" and think about a friend or family member scheming in one's romantic life. This collective envisions and enables the powers of matchmaking for a different purpose: research. The platform hopes to connect individuals with diverse skill sets and scholarly focuses so they can "seamlessly learn from each other." The group's Board of Matchmakers does the front-end work for users, sifting through researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to find experts who may mutually gain from collaborations. While these pairings often begin as informal partnerships and knowledge sharing opportunities, they have led to formalized associations, too. To explore how research4impact has influenced and improved various projects check out the Impact Stories page. On the Contact Us page readers can request matchmaking and sign up for a newsletter to stay in-the-loop on collaboration opportunities. For more information on the distinguished Board of Matchmakers, head over to the Who We Are page. research4impact is sponsored by the Rita Allen Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, SURFACE 51, and the Skoll Global Threats Fund.
